Take control of the information Microsoft collects about you

Ever since Microsoft rolled out its new operating system, Windows 10, people have had strong reactions to it. A lot of people like its improved security, the return of its Start menu, and its price (free, for now).

However, there are things people really don't like about Windows 10. One thing high on that list is Windows 10's privacy policy. Microsoft collects a lot of information about you, and about your online activity, to improve its functionality.

That's fine, if you don't mind a company keeping tabs on what you're up to. But if that makes you uneasy, you're not alone. The problem is compounded by how difficult Microsoft makes it to redo your privacy settings. (You may have mindlessly clicked through many pages of them when you first installed Windows 10.)

Fortunately, other companies have been simplifying the process. Win10 Spy Disabler, for instance, compiles Windows 10's setting into an easy-to-use, pop-up window.
